Scott Barrett (1989)

Scott Barrett received his PhD in economics from the LSE in 1989.

A year before graduating he joined the economics faculty at the London Business School. In 2000, he became a professor at the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies in Washington, DC. In 2009, he will be joining Columbia University’s Earth Institute and School of International and Public Affairs.

His special subject is “saving the world.” He is the author of Environment and Statecraft: The Strategy of Environmental Treaty-Making (paperback, 2005) and Why Cooperate? The Incentive to Supply Global Public Goods (2007), both published by Oxford University Press.

He says he would not have been able to attend the LSE were it not for the AFLSE scholarship.
